ELECTRONIC SHEEP: Electro-Fuse
NCAD Gallery presents the ELECTRONIC SHEEP duo of Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany with their exhibition, Electro-Fuse. The Internationally renowned designers have worked together since 1998 creating illustrative and typographic knitwear / jacquards based on narrative storylines drawing on their personal lives and socio-political histories. Electro-Fuse captures an edit of knitwear from this prolific practice to include the first showing of newly commissioned ‘The Kilburn Tapestries’, and the premiere of their Electro-Fuse 2021 Collection. The exhibition also includes iconic retrospective pieces and ephemera from the Electronic Sheep archive. As part of this project the NCAD Gallery is bringing this work to Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris in 2022, organised and curated by Anne Kelly, Curator, NCAD.
In the making of this exhibition the NCAD Gallery would like to acknowledge fantastic support received from the NCAD Departments of Fine Art Print, in our commissioning of work by 3rd Yr Print student, Amy Kiernan; the Fashion, Textiles & Surface Design in facilitating display loans: and Isabelle Peyrat for glass expertise. Our thanks to Delany Bowes, 1st Yr NCAD, John Kellegher, 3rd Year Fine Art Paint, Tom Simms, Studio + Product Design and special thanks to the NCAD Facilities Staff for their exhibition installation assistance.
